Hi,

Does anyone know what the rules are regarding putting flyers on windscreens of cars, nothing offensive, just promoting a summer sport/club.

Do you need permission to do it? Are there different rules for privately owned car parks, e.g. Malls vs council owned, vs public streets etc.

Thanks

If I ever catch someone putting a flier on my car, we'll be having a disagreement.

If you're asking because you want to do it, I'd like to... suggest you reconsider.

can I ask please don't do it. Getting into a car on a wet day,  putting away the wheelchair only to discover a leaflet under the wiper is a pain and a mission to get the chair down transfer into it go araond and remove the ***** thing and then repeating the whole getting into the car.

Please dont do it, it is a pain in the but, you often see people just dropping the unwanted flyers on the ground causing mass litter.

doing it guarantees you wont get my business.  but on the plus side, if you have facebook/twitter, ill likely b**ch about it all over your pages :P

 

so yeah, come up with a different way of doing it.  mailboxes are better and less annoying, still annoying, but thats what theyre kinda for.

If your business is nearby and I have the sprayglue in the car, you're gonna be in for some scraping if you leave trash on my car.

Flyers on the windscreen guarantee I won't be using the business or service being promoted and I will do everything in my power to make sure I spread the word.  Please re-consider your marketing strategy.  There are better ways.

I don't mind the flyers, but as others have said, check local bylaws.

 

Otherwise, if you're a facebook user, check to see if there is a local community page, or a buy\sell\swap site you could post your message too.

The only time i welcome a flyer is when I am walking to my car thinking Oh No ! A parking ticket!,  only to  find a flyer.

 

But in general I hate flyers left on windscreens.

I dont take nicely to someone playing with my windshield wipers, Then leaving rubbish under them. Could even rub up against the paint with what ever bag they are carrying too, I'd be cut.

 

As others said they dont take nicely to it and if anything is the opposite of what you want to achieve.
Opinions may differ, I have a crazy relation who would read it and think its gods gift and attend what it says.

Apart from intentionally interfering with a vehicle and risking, damage you also create panic when people may think they have been given a ticket. Far better to just do a letter box drop.

If you want to spend lots of money on printing and time walking around just to create litter that will lose you business from both vehicle owners and people who see your trash everywhere, then sure - this is a terrific idea

Hahaha this is my favourite thread ever. Leaves me reassured I'm not the only grumpy old man (true age ignored) around.

OP - In case you haven't figured it out... no fans of this around here!
